Meet our outstanding speakers
Scott Hanselman works for Microsoft as Principal Community Architect for Web Platform and Tools, aiming to spread the good word about developing software, most often on the Microsoft stack. Before this he was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree, for 6+ years and before that he was a Principal Consultant at STEP Technology for nearly 7 years. He was also involved in a few Microsoft-related things like the MVP and RD programs and will speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen to him. He's written few books, most recently with Bill Evjen and Devin Rader on Professional ASP.NET. He blogs at http://www.hanselman.com for the last 10 years and podcasts weekly at http://www.hanselminutes.com and http://www.thisdeveloperslife.com.
Greg Young is an independent consultant who lives in two suitcases (literally). When not travelling to clients spread throughout the world you can often find him on the domain driven design list, blogging at codebetter.com, or floating upside down in a kayak through rapids.
Mark’s career in software design and development spans three decades and more programming languages than he cares to remember. He is currently employed as Principal Architect at Dot Net Solutions, creating software with ASP.NET MVC, WPF, Silverlight and Windows Azure. He is a Windows Azure MVP. In his spare time, he enjoys learning new programming languages and paradigms (2011 is the year of CoffeeScript and F#), and works on the Simple.Data project, and Pocket C# for Windows Phone 7.
Martin is a language agnostic developer, agile evangelist and code hippie. He has invested 11 years of his life in professional systems development and has no plan of quitting as long as he keeps having fun. Martin works at tretton37 as a consultant where his focus lies on delivering, and helping others deliver, high quality software. On his journey through the software development jungle Martin has dabbed his fingers in everything from low-level programming to high-level processes in order to uncover better ways of developing software.
When Martin is not playing with software he can usually be found in one of the dark corners of the Internet, sharing his thoughts on his blog or on Twitter (@m_mazur).
I'm a freelance software developer with a solid background in both desktop and web development, now working on prototyping full-stack JS systems for a client in Belgium whilst advising on the more mundane aspects of their overall architecture and security. I like to focus on writing tests with value, and advocate that it's okay to write awful code so long as you're going to tidy it up every time you touch it.
